Cone is Ubuntu/Debian packaged software, so I would suggest that you 
use a more appropriate search tool :)  A quick

   apt-cache show cone


   Maintainer: Ubuntu MOTU Developers <ubuntu-motu at>
   Original-Maintainer: Varun Hiremath <varun at>

The latter of these is the Debian maintainer of the package.

For more detail on who is working on cone, you could download the source 
package (apt-get source cone) and then read the debian/copyright and 
debian/changelog files.  According to cone's debian/copyright:

Upstream Author: Sam Varshavchik <mrsam at>

and lastly the AUTHORS file included in the source tree says:

   Cone is written by:

   Sam Varshavchik <mrsam at>
   Double Precision, Inc.

   Suite 100-241
